I meant to make a different chicken salad recipe, but chrome blocked the website saying it had malware, so I improvised instead. Also, I totally thought we had grapes, but we didn't. So apples subbed in! I also meant to not eat this the night I made it. The sandwiches were supposed to be a quick dinner for later, but I ended up making more than enough for 2 nights and a lunch, so we enjoyed some early. This isn't the most stunning or gourmet meal, but it's quick, easy and pretty delicious. I'm posting the recipe so that I can remember what I did. Feel free to adjust amounts and ingredients to what you have. That's what I did! Next time I'd add more nuts and herbs or spices (whole mustard seed?) and possibly the raisins you see on the counter that I was debating but decided against.
We used some 30 minute rolls from here. They were okay, but I don't know if I'd make them again unless I was in a rush.
